Art in the Park only lasts two days, but there is a lot of work to be done for it to be a success. Volunteers need to be recruited to make sure that everything goes smoothly, but the main work is done by the chairperson. The vendors send in their applications and a space is assigned to them, then data is collected. All this rests on the shoulders of Bill Willis, who did an outstanding job again this year. Bill has been displaying his artwork at...

To the Editor: A large part of the Republican Party seems determined to convince me that it qualifies for a straight jacket.  Its past hallucinations involved threats from imaginary communists and socialists (most of whom are serving in Congress); death panels determined to kill my already deceased grandmother; a devious plot called climate change conjured up by Al Gore and every single significant scientific body in the world...

To the Editor:  If he gets re-elected “it’s all over but the crying” When we get 100 million willing Christians (or more) to bond together, voice their concerns and vote, we can take back America.   This can be done by forwarding this article to your friends and relatives (maybe even squeeze in liberal Democrats).  It only takes a willing heart and a fed up soul. In 1952...

It has been my honor to serve my country both as a member of the armed forces and in my civilian career. My stalwart belief is that there is no greater purpose. Serving as the Sheriff of Cochise County will be a continuation of my dedication. The passing of Sheriff Dever has left not only emptiness in our hearts, but a gap in the progress and future of Cochise County. The shoes he left behind must not be filled by a citizen of the past;...

Bears Many of us are very concerned about our state game and fish department allowing hunters to kill bears as a way to solve the problem of bears coming into areas populated by humans searching for food. We feel game and fish people should be able to find a way to provide the type of food bears, as well as other wild animals, like in areas away from human populated areas during times of extreme dryness or fire as a way to keep them from...

I personally do not like politics and for the most part there are few politicians I care for. However, I feel I must express my opinion concerning the upcoming election for the position of sheriff of our county. For those of you who will recall back to the four years between the service of Sheriff Jim Judd and the election of Sheriff Dever to office, there was a lot of disruption, dissatisfaction, and turmoil with the personnel and overall...

The heart of any campaign scandal is the mishandling of money or accepting of gifts, usually buried, improperly named or completely left off the reports lobbyists and legislators are required to file several times a year.   Now comes a proposal floated by Jerry Lewis — the Mesa lawmaker who beat Russell Pearce in a recall election last November. The idea pushed by Lewis — who is battling for re-election to the State Senate...
